An independent Review of our NHS partners revealed that there are opportunities to improve our service for patients across Wales. It was led by the Chief Ambulance Services Commissioner for Wales. 

The Review found that: 

  • Right now, we are not getting to around 2 to 3 people a day. These patients will be in a life or limb-threatening situation. 

  • People in northern parts of Mid Wales and North Wales do not have a localised air ambulance service overnight. They rely on a nighttime service from South Wales. 

  • The service’s highly skilled medical teams based in Welshpool and Caernarfon are underused. 

An NHS Wales committee called the Joint Commission Committee agreed that improvements should be made to the current air ambulance service in Wales.
